Any good remap is worth it on the 1litre if you aren't too fussed about any warranty implications. It really wakes the engine up, the torque increase around 3000rpm is amazing. I have the bluefin and really recommend it, bout 3 months on and it still puts a smile on my face every time I hit peak torque and it surges forward.

Totally sorted I think, I've had the new map on mine for 6week+ now with no issues, it's just like the original map but much more torque and power, 2nd gear still surprises me by how quick it is compared to stock even now and always puts a smile on my face

I have the pumaspeed one, it drops below the passenger headlight, doesn't suffer heatsoak. Difference in induction noise is minimal, but you do hear the recirc valve more (turbo hiss)

So a 100hp engine won't pull very hard in possibly the longest 5th gear on any production car. Wow, didn't see that coming.

You stick in 5th gear for economy, but rather than change down to a non-overdrive uneconomical gear, you buy an ST. And you wonder why we can't take your arguments seriously!

You made a couple of great points, but unfortunately, as ever, they're overshadowed by the other !Removed! you talk

Sorry but mine didn't. Pure and simple. I drive on the motorway everyday for 62 miles to work and back and it isn't sufficient for the job. I get others are in love with the 1.0 engine but I really fail to see why, I put up with it for 4 months and I give it a 4/10 for ergonomics. Others on here clearly agree by ditching theirs for an ST and more will follow.

Unless it was a typo, you said you had a zetec not a zetec S, and you can't get the 125hp engine in a zetec, just the 100hp correct? 25% more power is a lot.
